The Provost, College of Medical Sciences, University of Maiduguri, Professor Dr. Ahmed Ahidjo, has expressed delight with the construction and equipment of the ultra-modern 200-bed capacity hospital in Damaturu by the Yobe State government. The hospital is due to take off soon as installation of new medical equipment nears completion.
He said during an inspection visit to the state-of-the-art radiology and other facilities being installed at the hospital yesterday that it is the best state-owned hospital in the North-east.
“I have been to many hospitals in this country. I must say among the newly built hospitals, it is the best. As a radiologist, I feel at home seeing the modern imaging equipment on site. Again their distribution across the various radiological examination requests is very good. Even the University College Ibadan doesn’t have some of the new equipment in this hospital…If put to full function, Yobe State will witness referrals of patients to this hospital. This means medical tourism to Yobe. The steps taken by the governor of Yobe State in ensuring the construction and equipment of this health edifice is highly commendable”, Professor Ahidjo said.
Installation of new equipment in the hospital is now at over 95 per cent. Abdullahi Bego, the Director of Press Affairs to Governor Ibrahim Gaidam told newsmen after the visit that members of the public would be briefed on a regular basis about the progress being made and when the hospital would be ready for commissioning and use.
